About meI'm happiest sitting in my mango tree reading and eating green apples. That hasn't changed since I was about six (and I've now racked up a quarter century). I read when I eat, when I'm in the bath, on the bus, in cafes, when I'm watching TV ... I read everyday, for at least two hours if not more.
About my libraryA collection of books I've been accumulating since childhood, I usually buy at least one book a week, almost invariably second-hand. I used to primarily collect fantasy with a little sci-fi, of late I've really been into classic and modern (early to mid 20th century) literature. I'm enjoying reading short tight prose rather than the usual sprawling fantasy series. Steinbeck, Hemingway, Salinger, Somerset Maugham, Waugh, Woolf ... they be my peeps. Fo schizzle and so forth.
